This event supports the launch of the Lancet Commission report on peaceful societies through health and gender equality. The Lancet Commission provides evidence that health and gender equality have a unique and powerful ability to contribute to more peaceful societies. The report urges the humanitarian community to take tangible action to promote gender equality and embrace the importance of gender equality, integrate gender equality into the principle of humanity, and adopt gender-equal benchmarks within health sector responses.
During the event, participants will hear about the Commission’s findings and implications for the humanitarian sector, in addition to work by JHSPH factor to promote gender equity within humanitarian health.
